Hammers United are pleased to be able to confirm the location for the static protest taking place on Saturday 18th January between 1pm and 2pm. Speakers will be confirmed on Wednesday.
We are expecting a considerable turn out and there will be press coverage. It is imperative that those who attend the protest are well behaved. It is, of course, a protest and so there will be singing, shouting and hollering but it must be kept within the law.
We urge all those who go in to the stadium after the protest to give the players and management their full backing for 90 mins, it is vital they understand that we are completely behind them.
For more information on what Hammers United have set out to achieve through this protest, please see our open letter to the board on our website. This will be handed to the club at the end of the protest.
The protest will take place before the security checks as we have members attending who wish to bring banners or who may not wish to attend the game itself.
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday
